John Travolta says Scientology is “beautiful”

John Travolta is like, not of this world, right? He’s totally on another plane of existence and just does not have a grip on reality. Between acting and cruisin’ for dudes at the gym in the middle of the night, John is also a staunch supporter of Scientology and a member of its church. With the cult religion taking a lot of heat lately with the release of the Going Clear documentary, I guess he felt like it was important to speak out and say how “beautiful” Scientology can really be.

From The Tampa Bay Times:

“I haven’t experienced anything that the hearsay has (claimed), so why would I communicate something that wasn’t true for me?” Travolta said. “It wouldn’t make sense, nor would it for Tom, I imagine.”

Travolta called Going Clear a product of “people who were disgruntled with their experiences” with Scientology, while the church “has been nothing but brilliant for me.”

“I’ve been so happy with my (Scientology) experience in the last 40 years,” he said, “that I really don’t have anything to say that would shed light on (a documentary) so decidedly negative.

“I’ve been brought through storms that were insurmountable, and (Scientology has) been so beautiful for me, that I can’t even imagine attacking it.”

For the record, and if you couldn’t tell, John hasn’t seen Going Clear and he has no desire to. I don’t really think there’s any reasoning with someone who’s been so thoroughly brainwashed by a ridiculous cult that believes we’re all descended from aliens and need to work to release our inner thetans. I mean, I suppose it’s no more ridiculous than any other religion, but… meh.

Have any of you watched Going Clear? What did you think?

  • Well, I don’t think John Travolta is so much brain-washed as he is blackmailed. I saw the documentary and you have to reveal (by stages) every little secret or childhood experiences that you’ve had or you can’t “get clear”. They don’t tell you all that wild thetan and xenu jazz until you’re in really, really deep. L. Ron Hubbard basically said that confronting what scares or bothers you will make that fear go away which at first sight is a pretty valid position, so it’s not surprising that a lot of regular people get snared in, along with a substantial amount of their money. The hitch comes after you’ve spilled your guts to the “auditors”. They have all the dirt on you and they won’t hesitate to use it against you if you get out of line. By the same token, they employ a cracker-jack law and press team to counter any “innuendos” that may come out about you. Get the picture? I really do think that Tom Cruise is a sincere believer, which, at the end of the day is his right as an American citizen…and it’s my right to say that after watching the documentary I think he is not only one of the best actors of his time and that he is completely out of his mind.

    • Blasted – You gave a nice and sincere comment. I believe if Travolta had the chance he would get out but whatever they have on him must be very bad. It’s sad that this cult does this to it’s own people.
